History

The Antiguo Casino de Ponce (English: Old Ponce Casino), the Casino de Ponce, is a historic structure, built in 1922 and located in Ponce, Puerto Rico. Originally built as a social club for Ponce's elite, it is currently used as the premier reception center of "The Noble City of Puerto Rico" The building, designed by Agustin Camilo Gonzalez in the Second Empire and Neo-Rococo styles, has a French facade and tones. It was listed in the National Register of Historic Places on October 28, 1987. It is located at the corner of Marina and Luna streets. The building has been called "an icon of Ponce's architecture, history, and identity." It is owned and administered by the Ponce Municipal Government.

The Old Casino de Ponce stands as a reminder of the wealthy aristocracy of southern Puerto Rico in the late 19th and early 20th century.

From the architectural standpoint, the Old Casino is significant because in its structure the architect managed to incorporate the 19th century (Second Empire, neo-Rococo and other architectural styles in concrete construction: “It represents a transitional point from the brick and stucco classical Spanish traditional construction to the modern, reinforced-concrete technology of the United States."

From a social and cultural standpoint, the Old Casino is significant in that it expresses to this day the lifestyle of the area's wealthy families during the early decades of the 20th century. It is a reminder of how they lived and how World War II changed that lifestyle forever. The lavish second floor ballroom was extensively used prior to WWII as the de-facto meeting place for the most wealthy and influential families in Ponce and Puerto Rico. The Casino is associated with the social club that made the structure come to life; a club that has ceased to exist as today's way of life has pushed aside the lifestyle of the aristocracy of yesterday.

    El lugar simplemente es uno mágico. Algo que me encantó del Antiguo Casino es que no requiere de una gran inversión en decoración para que luzca hermoso. Gracias al personal del Casino que hizo de nuestro día uno especial.
